We will set off about 9am on 1st April by private transfer from Hoi An via Hai Van pass and Lang Co beach. We will have already been to Da Nang and Marble Mountain. So we can be in Hue and checked in to Holiday Diamond Hotel by, say, 13:00. We have two nights there before our flight to Hanoi from Hue airport at 15:30 on day 3.
How does this sound?
Day 1 - tour citadel etc independently foot (closes 17:00?)
Day 2 - arrange private boat trip to Thien Mu pagoda and Song Bo river, with "Tam" if possible
Day 3 - taxi to Royal Tombs in the morning and straight on to airport for 13:30 checkin
Not sure whether to do Tu Duc, Minh Mang and Khai Dinh or miss one out, if so , which one?
I am struggling to find a map of the area to see the locations of these places, so a link would be great.
I am hoping Plover will answer and particularly help with the Day 2 itinerary, hopefully suggesting if we can pre-arrange something with Tam, rather than just look from him down by the river! Also how much should we be paying for that and the Day 3 taxi? One thing bothering me with regard to Day 2 is that my wife is afraid of dogs - are there a lot of strays around in the Song Bo villages?
